sarah's weeknight meals

Found Flavors

Vegetables and herbs, whether they are harvested or found, are part of a heritage of flavors some feel have been lost in modern farming. Sara visits a professional forager whose unlikely career led her to supply the great restaurants of New York with "found food." After a foraging field trip, she joins Sara to make mugwort soup and asparagus with wildflowers. Sara also meets a college professor from Georgia whose mission is to rescue heritage seeds he claims have a richer flavor than those used in industrial farming.
